Hallways create connections throughout a home, but sometimes that same means of connectivity can create lots of separation. Homeowners Bill Welch and Maren Christensen saw that very problem in their ranch home. Through a renovation, they were able to make 3 changes that completely transformed their space. See the new space after the jump.
With the help of architect Mark Pearcy, the transformation comprised of three major changes: the removal of unnecessary walls, the addition of new skylights and the use of a large cabinet as a room divider. The kitchen, dining and living areas are now all linked and bathed in light creating a truly "great room."
